My passion is making Spanish come alive for students in real contexts, whatever level they may be at. This ranges from using battleship to teach conjugation, to writing newspaper headlines or writing a short story.

I have seven years of experience tutoring students, most of whom had attention and/or learning difficulties. I hold my students to high standards and support them as they steadily improve.

About Sheri F.

When I was young, I wanted to learn my father's language, Hungarian. He told me to learn Spanish instead because it was a much more useful language. Thanks, Dad!

My father also influenced me educationally because his parents had only a third and fifth grade education, so I had to appreciate education and work hard. My two younger siblings have attention and learning difficulties and I worked patiently and in a determined way with them as I have done these past seven years with all of my students.

I truly believe that there is always a way to overcome difficulties and I would love to show your child that it's true.

I recently started as a volunteer translator for TEDx. I translated an English talk on human rights into Spanish. My goal is to also show students that they can set goals and achieve them.
